But how much?

The age is salivating over developments in carbon sequestration technology, noting that it is “safe and efficient”. All good, but the fail to ask another basic question.

Carbon dioxide can be safely and reliably stored underground, an Australian-led team of researchers has concluded.

The team found that depleted gas fields would be able to store globally significant amounts of CO2 – a key strategy in tackling climate change.

Okay, what have they asked? How will it store the carbon dioxide? Check. How much will it store? Check. Is it safe? Check. Is it effective? Check. How much will it cost? Uh, no. I’d have thought this would be a rather important question, especially considering taxpayers would be footing the bill.
